Please RSVP with Darla to receive a light lunch at our monthly meetings.


Do you find yourself feeling guilty when it comes to your kids? Maybe there’s a little voice in the back of your mind telling you that you are not enough. The most important thing to remember is you’re not alone in feeling this way and you most certainly don’t have to accept the feelings of mom guilt.


The use of e-cigarettes is unsafe for kids, teens, and young adults. Most e-cigarettes contain nicotine. Nicotine is highly addictive and can harm adolescent brain development, which continues into the early to mid-20s.
